Thursday 12th November saw Temple Hill finally begin their league campaign away at Fleetdown Primary School. Our squad arrived in good time with Adam and Mr Fordham leading the pre-match warm up and final tactics talk before kick off. The match got off to a good start with both teams playing neat football in the middle of the park. In the 15th minute, a great touch from William saw Mitchell through on goal but his chance was blocked by the Fleetdown goalkeeper. Half time rolled around, the score 0-0.
The second half saw Temple Hill play at a much quicker tempo and the chances began early. A high ball from the back received a flick on from Femi and Mitchell was once again through on goal, this time curling the ball into the far right hand corner of the goal; Fleetdown 0 - 1 Temple Hill. However, with no more than 7 minutes to go Fleetdown equalised after a great run down the left saw their number 7 dance his way into the box and release the ball to their centre forward, who coolly tucked the ball past Alex in goal; Fleetdown 1 - 1 Temple Hill.
A great game of football and a decent start to the boy's season.
